    Looks good. Oak is good but don't forget about some of the others ..... like hickory, cherry and apple.

    Learn your oak types. Some of them can be a little strong if you aren't careful.

    I know a lot of folks like red oak, but i only use post oak.

    Most of it looks like red oak, there is also some water oak,and pin oak. In north florida oak less expensive then other types of wood. Now that I have some for cooking I can start looking for free sources that can have time to season.

    The red oak around here is some pretty stout and acrid stuff, but I think that between the different species of "Red Oak", and where it grows, there is some that is good stuff.

    I have never played with water oak, but pin oak is a type of red oak.

    There are several types of oak that are native to NE Okla.

    Post oak, burr oak, white oak, both northern and southern red oak, pin oak, water oak, black jack oak just to name a few.

    I can identify a few of them at a glance, but not all.

    Default Oak Wood

    Does make much difference which oak species you use as smoking wood?
